Recently updated to 2.8.2 version. I might be wrong but just wanted to clear one thing.
My settings are set as Slimstat should not track "bots and crawlers"
However after update, there has been considerable increase in my pageviews. Before that slimstat data and google analytics data were more or less the same. Now Slimstat data shows far more pageviews than google analytics.
Furthermore i tried to analyze that myself by counting and as it seems now slimstat does count bots n crawlers as "pageviews" even when i have turned it "OFF"
